A beautiful wooden church with a beautiful altar, worth visiting and seeing

The present state is a very well-kept church from the 19th century, but the beginnings date back to the 13th century. Around the church there is a cemetery where there are burials from the post-war period to the 1980s of the 20th century

The church is mentioned already in 1417. In the following century, the object was taken over by Protestants. The current temple dates from the eighteenth century. The construction of this wooden church was completed in 1711. The interior is decorated with neo-baroque polychrome from the nineteenth century in the form of ornamental and floristic stripes. The Baroque main altar dates from the 18th century. Stations of the cross in the folk style are from the nineteenth century. The surroundings around the church are well cared for, it is worth coming and seeing.

Krivoklát Castle

Křivoklát Castle was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
